GRR: Sevens World Series
World Rugby has confirmed the schedule for the 2022 HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series 2022 as the game comes out of repeated COVID interruptions.
The LA 7s is back, to be held March 5-6. The USA stop for the women's circuit is not back. The Women's World Series expands to seven tournaments, with only one, Langford BC< being a stand-alone event with no associated men's tournament.
The USA Men's finish at the Vancouver 7s was undone by a couple of silly errors and one poor refereeing decision, but overall, still, the young Eagles did well.
The HSBC Sevens World Series has started in a slightly different form, and a new-look USA men's team is looking fairly good.
With various countries able or not able to travel due to COVID fears, the tournament this weekend in Vancouver has 12 men's teams, including Great Britain (usually represented by three separate national teams) Germany, Chile, Hong Kong, Jamaica, and Mexico.
USA Men's 7s Head Coach Mike Friday has named his camp attendees for the upcoming Sevens World Series tournaments in Edmonton and Vancouver.
With Captain Madison Hughes announcing that he is taking time away from the team, and with the COVID shutdown (sort of) behind us as are the Olympics, there's space for new blood.
Chila Vista, Calif. (USA Rugby Release)—After seven years, two Olympic Games and numerous trips to the podium, USA Men’s Sevens Captain Madison Hughes has decided to step away from rugby with the intent to return sometime in the future.
